  1. Excellent build, nice NMF, my friend Marcus!

  2. Very nicely done. However, I have to say I was distracted and fascinated by the highly organized nature of your model factory in the background! Wow - I'm taking lessons!

    • Greg,

      with around 600 kits to be finished,one must establish such a Model Works,for I do intend to build them all...kkkk

      Indeed each one is restricted to an A4 sheet,hold by tape to the table,and each one of the subassemblies (cockpit,landing gear,props and so on) are pre-arranged so as to easy observation and progress.

      Thank you for your kind words.


  3. Looks great Marcus, considering Trumpeter’s Hornet is not all that accurate. You have a real production factory going on, judging by all the under construction projects in the background. Impressive!

  4. Awesome build, Marcus.
    Those stains on the upper wing surface are really beautiful.
    I love this NMF finish on this Mosquito.
    Compliments on your well organized bench.

  5. You've turned a sow's ear into a nice cloth purse, Marcus. One of these days, somebody is going to have to break down and give us some good Hornets (hasn't happened yet).

    Nice work on the finish.

  6. Beautiful build!

  7. That's a beautiful model Marcus @mvtb!

  8. Marcus as usual you have delivered an excellent model. The Hornet is one of my favourite aircraft. Trumpeter's Hornet unfortunately suffers from some accuracy issues in terms of the undercarriage, radiators and most obviously the windshield. However, these are not insurmountable odds. Nonetheless, your model looks AWESOME!
